A major Australian winery has announced customers will need to be fully-vaccinated to visit and made the jab mandatory for its workers.
'A double dose of the vaccination will be required on entry,' its post read.
The winery's stance indicated its staff also need to be vaccinated, echoing the move of Australian fruit and vegetable company SPC at the start of August.
'Let’s help ourselves, our friends in lockdown in the eastern states, our wine, food, hospitality, and tourism partners by getting this done,' Bird In Hand founder Andrew Nugent said.

South Australians are not under lockdown but travel to and from the state is restricted. Four new Covid cases were announced on Thursday.
But after receiving hundreds of complaints from anti-vaxxers, on Friday Mr Nugent issued an explanation - and doubled down on his pledge.
'It is an individual choice to be vaccinated. It is also a right and responsibility for individuals to be able to do what they believe to be in the best interests of their own personal environments,' Mr Nugent said.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
